Today Michael shares how to rough cut wood from the yard for use in wood working projects! We live in a wooded area and often deal with down trees. Why not turn them into free raw material?
This is the first video in a 3 part tips and tricks edition on milling and drying wood. Look out for the next two videos which will cover a few different techniques to dry the wood and then the final milling of the dried wood to complete the process.
The only tool required for this phase is a band saw. The band saw shown is our new Laguna 14 Twelve; so far we love it.
